Luminous Modernism: 1912

Image coming soon.

Caleb De Jong blogs about the exhibition Luminous Modernism: Scandinavian Art Comes to America 1912 at Scandinavia House, New York, on view through February 11, 2012.

De Jong writes that the show is "Based around a traveling exhibition from 1912 that highlighted Scandinavian artists, the show acts today as a chapter in nationalist artistic progression, including countries such as Iceland, once considered long off the artistic map. Many of the painters, including Thorvald Erichsen, Harold Sohlberg and Pekka Halonen, are little known outside of the origin countries, while some, such as the Danish artist Vilhelm Hammershoi and Norwegian Edvard Munch, have had international reputations for generations."
